DEATH Drones financed with Our Dollars

Apparently, the CIA airstrike that the Pakistan government says killed innocent civilians instead of the apparent target, top al-Qaida lieutenant Ayman al-Zawahiri, was conducted by DRONES.

That's right, folks. The United States gathers so-called "intelligence" from God knows where and sends DRONES to rain death on areas where it "suspects" the enemy is celebrating their holy days.

They knew innocent civilians would be killed; it was a price they were willing to pay. Remember, everything is relative.
ABC News quoted Pakistani military sources as saying that five of those killed were "high-level" al-Qaida figures.

But tribesmen in Damadola village in the Bajur tribal area said only locals were killed - 18 of their kinfolk, including eight women and five children.
Who to believe? Who's closer to the ground? Who, naturally, cares more about those killed? Who benefits from lying?
More than 600 people endured rain and cold on Sunday to rally against Friday's airstrike in the town of Samarbagh, about 50km east of Damadola.

Protesters chanted "Death to America", "Death to Bush", and "A friend of America is a traitor", while also denouncing General Pervez Musharraf, the Pakistani presidentfor co-operating with the United States.

[A]bout 8000 tribesmen staged a rally in the town of Inayat Qala, and a mob set fire to the office of a US-backed aid agency in a nearby village.
Of course, Pakistanis are pissed. What would you do if someone sent drones to bomb your neighborhood, killing your women and children, based on "intelligence" that some enemy of the state was hiding among you? This is NOT good, people.
Tensions remained high on Sunday near the village of Damadola, the site of the attack in the Bajur tribal area on the Afghan border, after police tear-gassed thousands of protesters who torched a US-funded aid agency office on Saturday.

"If we kept sheltering foreign terrorists here ... our future will not be good," Musharraf said in a speech broadcast on Sunday by state-run Pakistan Television.
Forgive me if I'm confused. But, exactly who are the terrorists here?

If all this disturbs you, know that this needless death and destruction is brought to you by fractional reserve banking at interest (among other premium sponsors, like intellectual property and floating exchange).

If the orchestrators of our wars didn't have RIVERS of funny money flowing into their coffers, they would have never been able to steer so much human energy towards so much death and destruction.

We give them the power with which they control our destinies. They literally have a blank check to do what they will with our lives.

If you don't know how our monetary system works, now's the time to learn. It's time to take our country back.

Musharraf is protecting his share of the take. Sigh. Its not as if enough of the world didn't hate us already, but we have to go and pull a stupid stunt like this. If I didn't know better, I'd swear the financial elites of this world are trying to foment a revolution.

You might be right.

The USA knows it can continue to attack areas in Pakistan because we have Musharaff by the balls. He knows he's a dictator, he knows his position is weak, and he knows that most of his military high-tech hardware is American, and he can't afford to anger America by denying access to the lawless tribal areas.

A pakistani democracy would not have tolerated it, to be sure.

Iran is realizing the insidious nature of these attacks, and is arming itself with the Tor-M1 system from Russia, which would knock a drone out of the sky with ease, since Predators are not terribly stealthy.
